The SR2S project will implement road diet measures that will reduce the number of vehicle travel lanes from 4-lanes to 2-lanes to create bicycle lanes and improve pedestrian facilities on East Market Street between Sanborn Road and Williams Road (Refer to attachment B1 and B2). The limits of the improvements are within the Suggested Routes to School for both Fremont Elementary and El Sausal Middle School. Details of the proposed Elementary/El Sausal Middle School SR2S Project are as follows:

  • Road Diet: Roadway restriping to reduce the number of vehicle travel lanes on East Market from 4 lanes to 2 lanes between Eucalyptus Drive and Midway Avenue
  • Class II and IV Bike Lanes: Installation of painted bike lanes and separation with vehicle travel lanes on the north and south sides of East Market Street.
  • Intersection Traffic Control Improvements: The current all way stop intersection at two locations, (1) E. Market & Eucalyptus and (2) E. Market and Towt, will be improved to include traffic signals, high visibility crosswalks, and bulb-outs at each corner of the intersections.
  • Bulb-outs: The construction of bulb-outs in front of Fremont Elementary school at the intersections of East Market Street/ 2nd Avenue and East Market Street / Quilla Street. Bulb-outs will also be included at the two intersections as noted above.
  • Crosswalks: This project will install high visibility mid-block crosswalk which provides access across Market Street to Fremont Elementary School.
  • ADA Compliance: The existing sidewalks throughout the project area will be upgraded with ADA compliant pedestrian access ramps.
